Rod Sterling's Twilight Zone (Walker) A mysterious flash in the sky causes a power outage on a small country street. All the residents come out and congregate to talk about what to do, but darkness has a way of bringing out the fear in people. One night a strange flash in the sky made everyone go to their windows wondering what it was. Then the lights went out and all was dark. The neighbors ran out of their houses frightened and wanting information about the events. All wondered but few moved to check the surrounding areas. Their fear had immobilized them. Joking became serious talk about monsters and aliens. Neighbors that were strange began to seem like from another planet, eccentricities became part of being an alien. Noises in the dark became magnified and fear brought out the meanness and suspicious minds of humans. Guns appeared, bats, and sticks.... then violence!
Everyone in this quiet neighborhood, one cool and dark evening stepped into the twilight zone. MD
